BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- If you're a recognized fashion influencer and your inexperienced ex-retail partner trashes your reputation on National Television, you hire the toughest, fiercest attack-dog lawyer you can find. Right?
That's exactly what international fashion influencer Jackie Beard Robinson has done in retaining no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners lawyer Larry Klayman, to deal with her nemesis, New Jersey Housewives star Melissa Gorga.
Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, has a reputation of fighting corruption in government and wrongdoers. He's the first lawyer to obtain a court ruling that Bill Clinton committed a crime, the first such ruling by any lawyer against an American president. Klayman is representing Robinson in his personal capacity.
"In January my client and Gorga had a falling out in their business relationship, but that doesn't mean Gorga had the right to bash her ex-partner's integrity publicly in press interviews and on Bravo's network that aired The Real Housewives of New Jersey," said Klayman.
Any business venture can hit a snag as it did in the Montclair, NJ boutique, Envy. A difference of opinion on the store's future direction turned ugly, but that's no excuse for disparaging your ex-partner so publicly.
"Gorga said it was her client's fault that led to shutting the boutique, yet of the two partners, Robinson was the only experienced one in fashion retail," said Klayman.
The two clashed on the seventh season of "Real Housewives of New Jersey" about the store's direction -- specifically about Robinson's desire to expand selection to accommodate shoppers who aren't, say, a size 2.
The business partners opened Envy in December 2015, and it was a source of tension between Gorga, formerly a stay-at-home mom, and her husband, who allegedly didn't want his wife working.
"I was blindsided," Melissa told The Daily Dish. "I woke up one morning and Envy was completely emptied — not even a hanger left. I cried for three days straight."
Media reported Robinson had teamed up with Gorga's on-and off-screen nemesis Kim DePaola. Yet, the boutique's merchandise was indeed owned by Robinson, who has now had her reputation smeared on National TV.
According to Klayman, "we'll show that Gorga was so naïve and inexperienced in fashion retail, she didn't deserve a hanger to hang on."
